= My First Kill =

Wind rushes, as I greet the sky
Beneath me, celebration bright
On my mind, rests a thought most dry
Writhing dusk, poised to slay the light

Rooftop tile, stays my foot in grip
Doubt holds me, dance blooms on the deck
Target cheers, reaching for my hip
Fūma steel, thirsty for her neck

Taking breath, calm my beating heart
Rest at ease, of toast cries a chime
Yet outside, waits escaping cart
Talented, hunter bides his time

Chance shows then, sparks within the dark
Fireworks, calling for my eye
Disregard, pouncing at my mark
Alike wine, blood makes pretty dye

In surprise, mouth opened to ask
Slinking out, no glances were shed
Deafening, fire served its task
No words came, but trail vicious red

Fading now, she has lost her grace
Left to wonder, in her seconds last
My mask is, the truth of my face
Smile abates, warmth a thing of past

I spare thought, of her future torn
Armour clangs, crouching on my knee
Shadows hide, a killer just born
All she was, all that she would be

I have seized, acting as a pawn
Her cold breath, sent chill down my spine
Woodlands green, harbour rising dawn
Boy of ten, fades now within pine

Far ahead, stood my wardens dear
Question strikes, cart's uneasy trot
Yet has passed, of failure grim fear
The girl's body, yielded now to rot

Rough cloth drinks, crimson of my blade
Silence grim, cut most joyous ball
Inquiring, eyes 'neath sunlit glade
I truly, felt nothing at all
